The words below are also used to describe position and you can use it in your everyday language.  If you could practise these at home with your child to help them understand the meaning.  For example ‘Push your chairs underneath the table’.  It doesn’t have to be as part of a lesson just as you work through the day.

Time to Talk

Today’s session is building on last Tuesday’s when we were thinking about Feelings & Actions.

Take 10-15 minutes with your child and have a talk away from any distractions.

Explain to your child (or children) that sometimes we experience strong or extreme feelings. But we don’t want our feelings to make us act in ways that we would be sorry about afterwards, so we should have some simple ideas to help us.

  • Count to 10
  • Take a deep breath
  • Walk away
  • Have a THINK moment before you speak
  • Talk to a teacher/someone you trust

Sometimes these simple actions do not always work and we can get carried away.  When this happens our actions have consequences.  This means that what we decide to do, like saying an unkind word, may have results that we might not be happy about later.

Explain that we ALL make mistakes.

What could we do if we get carried away with our actions:

  • Say Sorry
  • Explain why you got upset, but that you shouldn’t have acted the way you did.
  • Ask them to forgive you

Discuss with your child (or children) what forgiveness means – not holding it against them. Explain that it may seem unfair to just let someone off without making them ‘pay’ for what they did. That is why it takes a special kind of love, like the love of God, to forgive.

This session is about taking time to talk to your child about saying sorry and forgiveness.  Please use this quiet time to reassure them that we learn from our mistakes and that it is always important to talk.  End the time with your child by saying the prayer below.
